Aaron Pancake
Aaron Pancake, one of our best known and most highly respected citizens, passed peacefully to the silent shore Tuesday afternoon at his home in Harrison township. The deceased was born in Virginia, January 4, 1817 and was therefore 74 years, 8 months and 18 days old. When a young man he moved from Virginia to Ohio, locating in Ross county, and afterwards, about 1850, came to Van Wert county where he has since resided. In late years he has been in feeble health on account of the afflictions of old age, being seldom able to come to town or leave his room. Seven children, five sons and two daughters, survive. Funeral services took place yesterday and were attended by a very large concourse of sorrowing friends.
